Mayfest Crafts Festival Blog

MayFest is one of the longest running festivals in North Carolina and one of the best attended. Drawing visitors and vendors from across the region, it's the first chance to welcome in spring!

Among our favorite attractions and traditions...

Over a hundred vendors line Main Street, representing the best in local and regional talent, including wood turned bowls, hand crafted wooden toys, one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry, boutique fashions, hand-knitted and crocheted items, quilts and uniquely designed crafts. If you can't find 5 things you MUST have, you're not trying!

There will be plenty of activities for kids including PlayLand, a wide assortment of inflatables and a rock climbing wall, games, face painting and the Rutherfordton Fire Department obstacle course.
